We know that transferring can be a daunting process. That’s why the University of Sioux Falls is here for you The Whole Way. Small classes, personal attention from faculty and staff and a Christian atmosphere make USF an ideal place to continue your education. We know you have a lot of questions, so let us answer a few of them by giving you “the scoop” on transferring to USF. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

The Scoop:

Applying for Admission (traditional, undergraduate) • If you want to enroll in more than 6 credits per semester, have accumulated 12 credits at USF or if you intend to receive financial aid, you must apply for admission. • To apply for admission, simply go to usiouxfalls.edu/admissions and fill out the online application. You must also submit official transcripts from your high school (or GED certificate) and all post-secondary institutions you have attended.

Applying for Admission (Degree Completion Program) Our Degree Completion Program (DCP) was created specifically for adults—including transfer students—who want to complete their degree while still working, raising a family or pursuing other interests. DCP allows you to earn your degree after attending classes just one evening per week in less than two years. DCP features include the following: • Degrees in accounting, management and entrepreneurial studies • Flexible class schedule one night per week • Affordable costs-per-credit • Spring, summer and fall start dates For more information and to apply for DCP, visit usiouxfalls.edu/dcp, call 1-800-888-1407 or 1-605-331-6735 or email dcp@usiouxfalls.edu. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
